The Telltale Hand.
A writer In an Engfishi weekly de.
elares that If we want to know what
the other person is thinking we must
look at his or her handa. Even un-
practiced lips can lie, as every one
knows. Long practice In self control
will enable one to keep tone's voice
sweetly cordial when there Is nothing
but Indifference or cold dislike behind
It. The eyes otmni be made to shoot
a glances which are not at all a register
for the emotions. But the hands, it is
asserted, are utterly beyond the con-
trol of those to whom they belong.
Even people who hardly gesticulate at
all-and to keep the funds still is con-
A sidered by the Auglo-Semon a most es-
seutial part of good lteedling--even
h these people are, It seems, constantly
revealing themselves In little move-
ments of the hnidas. The immortal Muil-
v mey bns put It on record that a wo-
itian's truth or untruth can bie dis-
cerned by the action of her hands. Of
course it takes a practiced reader to
Interpret what the hands are saying.
It Is not a case of "he wlo runs may
f read."

No Crot For Him
Having just come into a large
fortune, it wa neceasary that he
should launch out in style. Ilsia
first visit was to a fashionable ta.
lor, to whom he mentioned that he
was sending around his coachman
to be measured for a suit of livery.
A keen man of business, Mr. Snips
scented a good customer, whomight
knot be averse to flattery.
"Don't you think, sir," he said
insinuatingly, "that it would be nice
to have your crest stamped on your
coachman's buttons ? It's quite the
correct thing."
"Crest!" roared the indignant
Croesus. "What do you think my
servants want with crests? D'ye
take us for a family of cockatoos?"

THE CURIOUS SNAIL.
Strange Fact* About the P ull 09eld
Blooded Animal,
If one wishes to examine a snail
he should plao3 the specimen on an
Siece of glass, The snail is a cold
blooded animal and contact with a
warm hand probably induces in himn
the feeling which would result in
us from placing the hand or body
on top of the kitchen range. The
coolness of the glass will be agree-
able to his snailship, and he will
travel peaceably along, rapidly ex-
panding and contracting his broad,
suckerllie feet.
His horns are potracted in an
inquiring manner, and if a finger is
placed in front of him he will prob-
ably walk on until these feelers
come in contact with It. Then the
tentacles are withdrawn and waved
about in the effort to see the ob-
struction nwre clearly, for each
feeler contains at its end a small,
imperfect, but still discernible, eye,
which is capable of distinguishing
between light and darkness.
A snail's manner of withdrawing
his horns is very curious. lie doe s
not pull then back bodily into their
receptacle, but turns them inside
out, just as one turn& the fingers of
a glove in drawing it backward.
The funny little r (er has a
sense of smell and alw l'My well
developed ear, which l.ir close to
the root of his horns. His breath-
ing apparatus is of the simplest de-
scription. Looking carefully at his
right side, one may see that a dis-
tinct hole occasionally appears
there, remains open a few moments
and then closes again. This is sint-
ply a cavity in the snail's body, into
which he allows a certain quantity
of air to enter "whenever he thinks
of it," as one might say.
When air has thus found its way
into his interior he keeps it there
until its oxygen is exhausted by his
vital processes. What remains,
laden with carbonic acid, is allowed
to escape by reopening the little
trapdoor, and the receptacle is filled
by another supply of fresh air.
The snail's mouth is armed with
a sawlike tongue, which resembles
a long, narrow ribbon, coiled up in
such a manner that only a part of
it comes into use at once. Distrib-
uted over the surface of this ribbon
are tiny teeth, one animal some-
times having as many as 30,000.
As one set of teeth becomes worn
away by loaf nutting another section
of ribbon ig uncoiled, and the tooth
which before were wrapped up att
the back of the mouth come for-
ward to take their turn in pressing
the food against the horny upper
surface mf the mouth and thus cut-
tiqlg it in clean incisions.

City Taxes.
Under the new charter


thi' city


tax assessor is instructed to begin
"- making his assessments oin city
IK property real and pt rsonal. on the
firat of January and is supposed to
assess all property at itsvalueon
that date.
We believe that the time hasi
come when the city should have
more mopcy for imprrovon.onts, min]
it should he rai'etl by taxation as
evenly proportimte, t as possible. 'T(
thisend, we woull stdugest that tlc
Council instruct tlie tassssor, thait
ill .-.,king hiJ ,livy for the Il!)t,0
book, that he a s.ses all property
within the city limits at its full
cash value at the beginning of thei
yaar.
The present administration has
demonstrated its ability to handle
city funds to advantage and we do
not believowthe th tx payers will pro-
test against a raise inl taxes if they
can be shown that the money will
be used for improvements.

T'lit subject of raising tax. s has
always been broached with, trepida-

we want, to remain in the, samni >ld

favorable criticism of vi tors from
cities that are improved, we must
tall help the improvements along by
contributing our share of taxes
without grumbling.

Vie *ulew and Waraante,
tn one of his letters Von Bulow .o-
fean to Garasate a" follows: "Re has
encbanted me beyond measure, par.
tlcularly in his conoeet of yesterday,
when he played a splendid work,
'Bympbonie Bspagnole,' by Lalo -
played In so genuinely artistic a man-
ner that today I am still intoxicated
with it His playing also of the Saint.
Sens concert piece for violin Is as en-
trancing as Interesting. It Il a bhamae
hat he cannot come to see me. N. B.
_I have purposely avoided his person-
1 ecquaintauce. Perhaps he has tried
a"0 e me, for over my door stands the
otloe:
."Mornmnss-not to be seen.
|Afternoons-not at lIunae,
"But perhaps he did not ring the
,ell. (He never plays under 1,000
ranc-he received this sum here at a
private musicale) For secretary be
;as Otto Goldschmidt, who sent ime a
ass, which I returned with the re.
ark that for such an important con-
eert I could certainly afford to buy my
ecket. Six marks was In no way too
nch to pay."
Bulow did make hib acquaintance,
however as he refers in a later letter
Sarasate coming, quite unexpected-
to a "conference with Jolannes"
rabinm), at which he himself was
reseat.
S He Preferred Mules,
One of the pet bobbles of SBeator
ibrU'opher Magee wa htis newspaper,
U Pitt burg Times. He kept the pa-
well to the *ront, and It was a
credit to modern journalin, One
morning the Times had been scooped
ion a railway wreck.
"Benator," asked an intimate ac-
quatntanee, "how do you console your-
self on the loe of that wreck *tory
N this morning?"
"By congratulating ourswlves," he an-
swered quickly, "that we are among
the number who mlased that ill fated
train."
On another occasion as the senator
twas approaching the Times building
on Fourth avenue he notked a crowd
gathered about a wagon which was
filled with huge rolls of newspaper. A
wheel was caught In a deep rut in the
pavement and could not be budged.
"Senator," laughed a friend, "they
managed at last to get your paper into
a rut"
S"Yes," answered Mr. Magee, Mis eyes
twinkling with good humor, "and I'm
not trusting to men to get It out again,
but to mules."-Philadelphia Press.
Vanity of Men.
Tn a woman's club, over tea and
'.':*: t. .i i.,p Cf JifJi e ,
ma,"y, many instances of the foolish
vanity of males.
S"hTake the case of bees," one said.,
"Because the queen bee rules the hive,'
J because she ls the absolute miltroess
Sof uillious of subject, man up to a
few hundred years ago denied her sex.
He called her the king bee.
1"PUny wrote somewhere, 'The king
hbee is the only male, all the rest being
females.' And Moses Rudten, beekeep-
er to Charles II., stoutly denied, In or-
er to please his royal master, that the
large bee, the ruler of the hives, be-
onged to the gentler sex.
S"ven Shakespeare couldn't bear to
ink that the bee of beea, the largest
rrnd wisest and fairest, the hive's ab-
te lord, was a female. No, all the
roofs notwithstanding, Bhakespeare
ed her a male. Don't you remem-
tunme that by a rule a nature teah
aot of order to a peopledd kinadorm,
hy ave a king and olcers of sorts."
-New Orleans Times-Democrat.
J^ Oaeualtles Expeetod.
Duritn one of Bpeke Cannon's bit.-
r political fights In his district in 1111.-
ois the opposition resorted to deeper-
te tactics. Among other things friends
f Uncle Joe were summarily dismiss-
r from positions they beld In the pub-

smile: "Nothing. It you go into

CHAMBERLAIN'S


The Wrong Herse,
Bridget bad been in America only a
few months, but she believed In t4e
principle of pretending to know what
she ought to know. she had been en-
gaged as laundry girl in a small family
of well to do people. When asked itf
she understood all the details of her
work she unhesitatingly replied, "Sure
1 do, ma'am."
Her mistress was not quite satisfled,
however, and while sheo was busy with
her first washing looked lu upon hcr.
llrldgot seemed to beo doing all right,
nrd sho left without offering auggeS-
t lIons.
Next morning the Ironing was in or-
der, and Bridget was hard at it whi-
her mistress lo,,nkd in to say, "As you
get the clothes ironed, just throw them
over tile horse." '
"All right, ma'atin," the busy lniundry
girl replied without stopping to raise
Sheer eyes from her work in hand.
The laundry room was located In an
outhouse adjoining the barn, and or, a-
alonally the neilrhing-of the f;nuil.v
horse and the merry voice of Bridget
resounded throughout the house.
Returning to the laundry house a
couple of hours later, the lady could
scarcely believe her eyes nor restrain
her mirth when she behold the fam-
ily horse, standing patiently beside
Bridget, loaded down with newly
ironed sheet, pillowcases, tablecloths
and lace trimmed waists and skirts.
With an anxious look on her honest
face Bridget observed. m'm glad
you've come, ma'am, for I'll have to
have another horse."

Working Too Hard.
The owner uof the farm had been en-
Joying himself at the county fair, while
his hardworking wife stayed at home
to see that the farm suffered no loss
nla his absence.
"Well, Sarah," said the owner upon
hin return, "I'm about all tired out. Is
the cows in the barn?" i
"Yes; long since," replied his wife.

"Is the hoses unharnessed an' fed?"

"Chickens locked up?'
"Yes."
"Wood chopped for morning? "
"Yes."
"Wagon heel mended an' ready t'

"Yes."

Mr. Homer Krohn of Lisbon,
Iowa, in a letter to the manufac-
turter of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy praises this medicine for
what it has done for his children.
He says: "It has not only saved
them once but many a time. Only
two weeks ago my boy had the
croup so bad in the night that had
it not been for having a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
the house he would have choked
before a doctor could have gotten
to the house. It is a medicine that
no one should be without at any
time." It is pleasant to take and
many children like it.


"We guarantee every bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,"
says WN. M, Irish, Palmerston,
Ontario. "On oif the many bottles
sold last winter iot one was re*
turned. Me mninuiend it espe-
cially for hIildren with croup."
Chanrlbcltir's Cough Remedy is
famous fnr (t, pIouipt cures of
coughs, c01;s id Crrt'p. WhVi.n
iven as soon thei hili' 1ncomnes

averted. This nildicine is nti'rciy
free from narcotics or injuriia sub-
stances of any kind aud may be

Attacks of croup are most likely to occur during the early

be prepared for it. Keep a bottle of CHAMBERLAIN'S

ThIl New Hospital.
Dr, J. B, Maloney has had plans
and specifications made for the pro,
posed addition to his brick building
on the corner of Fleming and Si-
monton streets and for the changes
necessary to convert this building
into a modernly arranged hospital.
The plane contemplate the acidi-
tion of another story, making the
building four stories high. On the
fourth floor it is proposed to locate
the operating rooms, The south-
west corner of the building has
been selected for this purpose and
it is the intention of the* Doctor to
equip this room with all the andern
appliances, It will be away from
the noise and hustle of the street,
Sbyond the reach of the dust and
cono and airy at all times. There
will be space on the fourth floor
alio for six large rooms, each one
being well supplied with windows
looking out on the street. The
centre of the floor will he left for a
reception and lounging room for
I the patients. This will he suppllpd
with light by a large skylighi in the
roof, The third fltor will be used
entirely for sick wards, The second
floor will be used for offices for the
physiciaAs and nurses and the drug
mbore will occupy the first floor.
The plans have all been made
and the D)tor, expects thatV the
work on the addition will begin
within the next sixty days, and as
* sopn as poss'blo the Louise Maloe y
osoll wi. he mryed there.
The success of) the hospital this'
r has been remarkable. The need
Such an institution has vety
often been keenly felt, but even Dr.
Maloney, who has long been enthu-
siast.io over the project did not ex-
pect that it would meet witn such
success at the very outset.
But even at that, it requires a
greAt deal of business nerve to
launch such a project as he now
contemplates. It will cost thou.
sands of dollars to carry it through
and when oompletec Key West will
be able to boast of one of the finest
and best equipped hospitals in tl-e
state.
Realizing the immensity of the
undertaking Dr. Maloney appealed
to the city and county boards some
time ago for aid for the project. It
is to be regretted that neither body
offered assistance. The Doctor was
not disconcerted by this indiffer-
ence, however, and with or without
outside aid he is determined to have
the hospital.
'That he will be successful we
have no doubt and we feel certain
that the Louise Malonsy Hospital
will be a grand monument to his
memory many, many years hence.

In one of his letters Yon BUIow re-
fers to trasate s follows: "He has
\enchanted me beyond measure, par.
ticularly in his concert of yesterday,
when he played a splendid work,
'Symphonie Espagnole,' by Lalo -

Booens concert piece for violin is as en-
trancing as Interesting. It ls a hamee

to see me, for over my door stands the
notice:

Afternoons-not at home.

bell. (He never plays under 1,000
francs-he received this sum here at a
private musicale) For secretary he
has Otto Ooldschmidt, who sent me a
pass, which I returned with the re-
mark that for such an important con-
cert I could certainly afford to buy my
ticket. Six marks was in no way too
much to pay."
Bulow did make his acquaintance,
however, as he refers in a later letter
to Sarasate coming, quite unexpected-
ly, to a "conference with Johannes"
(Brahms), at which he himself was
present.
He Preferred Mules.
One of the pet hobbles of Senator
Chbritopbor Magee was his newspaper,
the Pittsburg Times. He kept the pa-
per well to the *ront, and it was a
credit to modern journalium. One
morning the Times had been scooped
on a railway wreck.
"Senator," asked an intimate ac-
quaintance, "how do you console your-
self on the loss of that wreck story
this morning?"
"By congratulating ourselves," he an-
swered quickly, "that we are among

gathered about a wagon which was

pavement and could not be budged.

er to Charles II., stoutly denied, in or.
der to please his royal master, that the
large bee, the ruler of the hives, be-
longed to the gentler sex.
"Even Shakespeare couldn't bear to

Bridget had been in Amoeric only a
few months, but she bellevQe4 In te
principle of pretending to know what
she ought to know. She had been en.
gaged as laundry girl in a small family
of well to do people. When asked itf
bae understood all the details of her
work she unheultatingly replied, "lure
I do, ma'am,"
Her mistire was not quito satisfied,
however, and while she was busy with
her first washing looked la upon her.
Bridget seemed to be doing all right,
and she left without offering auggea
tlons,
Next morning the Ironing was In or-
der, and Bridget was hard at It when
her mistress looked in to say, "As you
get the clothes Ironed, Just throw them
over the horse," '
"All right, mr am," the busy laundry
girl replied without stopping to raise
her eyes from her work in hahd.
The laundry room was located In an
outhouse adjoining the barn, and occa.
elonally the neighing -bf the family
horse and the merry voice of Bridget
resounded throughout the house.
Returning to the laundry bouse a
couple of hours later, the lady could
scarcely believe her eyes nor restrain
her mirth when she beheld the fam.-
$y horse, standing patiently beside
Budget, loaded down with newly
Ironed shbet, pillLowcaes, 'tablecloths
and laee trimmed waists and skirts.
With an anxious look on her honest
face Bridget observed. 61'm glad
you've come, ma'am, for I'll have to
have another horse."

Working Toe Hard.
The owner of the farm had boen en-
joying himself at the county fair, while
his hardworking wife stayed at home
to see that the farm suffered no loss
In his absence.
"Well, Sarah," said the owner upon
his return, "I'm about all tired out. Is
the cows In the barn?"
"YTe; long snlce," replied his wife,
barely looking up from the task then
in hand.
"Is the boases unharnesad an' fed?"
"Yea."
"Chickens locked up?
"Yes."
"Wood chopped for mornin'l'
"YI."
"Wagon heel mended an' ready t'
start in th' mornln'?"
"Yes."

Half an hour later the mother looked
out after her boy and saw him playing
with Willie Burr. She raised the win.

Marlow came, but as he did so he

Catching Rate.
The best way to catch rate is to put
any animal substance, well perfumed
with oil of rhodium, into a trap. This
induces them to enter readily and even
draws them from a considerable dis-
tance, as they are extremely partial to
this oil. An ounce of oil of rhodium
will cost you 50 cent. Catnip to a cat
is nothing like rhodium to a rat Oil

what it has done for his children,
He says: "It has not only saved
them once but many a time. Only
two weeks ago my boy had the
oroup so bad In the night that had
it not been for having a bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy in
the house he would have choked
before a doctor could have gotten
to the house. It is a medicine that
no one should be without at any
time." It is pleasant to take and
many children like it.


"We guarantee every bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy,"

sold last winter not one was im-
turned. We recommend it espeq
cially for children with croup."

coughs, colds and crop. When
given as soon as the child' becomes
hoarse an attack of croup may he
averted. This medicine Is entirely
free from narcotics or injurious sub-
stances of any kind and may be

lute safety.
